- Is it an FBV LongBoard? If so it should work OK to a point. Some of the foot switches etc.... will be redundant and working with functions such as the Quick Looper may require you to select Looper mode from the POD HD desktop itself.
- The POD HD desktop does not have XLR outputs. You only have the choice of TRS 1/4" outputs. The audio quality is the same as a POD HD500 which has both XLR balanced and unbalanced 1/4" outputs. On the HD500 the 1/4" outputs can be set to LINE level or Amp level outputs, whilst the XLR outs are quieter at Mic level and require to be connected to a microphone ready channel on say a PA mixing desk or recording interface/console.

1. Yes it's the FBV Longboard and I remember being limited but still functional with the XT Pod so good to know it will work for the HD POD.
2. For live I use my XLR out from the X3 Live to a tube preamp on by board then to the PA. So if I will get the same quality through the preamp using the 1/4" outs then I'm happy. I'd like the desktop so I can have it closer to me to edit.
Thanks for you help Nick. My X3 Live recently took a coffee bath and it hasn't worked properly since ;(
